In addition, when they have exceptional elements such as a beautiful location or outdoor space, prices can rise to 20,000 euros.

Alexander Kraft, president of Sotheby's International Realty France and Monaco, observes an increase of 20% of the sales of its agencies between January and June 2020. An astonishing score whereas the foreign customers cannot reach the capital anymore. But this absence still leaves us to fear a more demanding market.
